Red Spots Spread On The Eyeballs?
Hello, I want to ask. In the color of my eyeballs (irises) it grew like spots and was increasing in number every day. But my eyes don’t feel sore or block. I use contact lenses every day. I guess that’s why? Please answer. Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of spots around the iris of the eye may indicate inflammation of the cornea, or what is often referred to as keratitis. This condition can occur due to infection, either due to viruses, bacteria, fungi, or parasites. The trigger is usually a history of injury to the cornea, including in contact lens users who do not pay close attention to the hygiene of the contact lenses used. The freckles in your eyes may appear due to deposition of inflammatory cells as well as dead cells in the area in front of the eye. In addition to freckles, keratitis sufferers will generally also experience red, painful, swollen, itchy, lumpy, more sensitive to light, watery, tearing (secreting abnormal secretions), difficulty opening the eyes, and decreased vision quality.
In addition to keratitis, your complaints may also arise due to other causes, for example conjunctivitis (inflammation of the conjunctiva), uveitis (inflammation of the uvea tract), cataracts (clouding of the eye lens), endophthalmitis (inflammation of the inner lining of the eyeball), corneal ulcers (ulcers in the cornea. ), trichiasis (ingrown lashes), and so on.
You should check your complaint directly to a doctor. Usually, the doctor will evaluate the possible causes of your complaint and provide appropriate treatment. If you feel that the complaint is not getting better after 1 or 2 days of using the drug, you can also be referred to an ophthalmologist for further treatment.
Currently, you should not touch your eyes too often, especially using drops carelessly, unless prescribed directly by a doctor. If there is discomfort, drop artificial tears into your eye. If you use contact lenses, in the meantime, you should first avoid using them before they are declared safe by a doctor.
Furthermore, so that complaints do not recur, make sure you treat them properly, namely by:
Always wash your hands before and after using contact lenses. Keep contact lenses in place properly. Remove contact lenses every time you sleep. Wash and clean contact lenses with the right cleaning fluid. Discard previously used contact lens cleaning fluid, don't reuse. Stay away from cigarettes Hope it helps.
